Abstract

A fully complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor-compatible adiabatic passage of light in the visible range is presented in this letter. We experimentally show that a system of three total internal reflection waveguides, which has been defined by using non-stoichiometric silicon oxide, allows a highly efficient transfer of light between the outermost waveguides by adiabatically following one eigenmode of the system. Furthermore, we demonstrate that such transfer of light is very robust against small variations of the system parameters.
